A symbol of Czech statehood, Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument sits on a high promontory overlooking the Vltava River. This "Castle on the Heights," as its name roughly translates, notably contains a neo-Gothic church and an 11th-century rotunda, the oldest one in Prague. The extensive complex of structures also includes a 19th-century cemetery that's the final resting place for many Czech luminaries, including Alfons Mucha, Bedrich Smetana, and Antonin Dvorak. Many of the cemetery's headstones represent examples of outstanding artistic achievement; Dvorak's tombstone counts among the finest works of sculptor Ladislav Saloun, also interred here.

Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument Reviews
The method looks complex, but it creates scene as soon as you're there. We only ran across the ferry. Be ready to walk a little difficult. more »
It was a fantastic journey at a nice cost. With an excellent automatic tour worth a visit. It fills up very quickly with the main tip before reservation. more »
One of the best places to enjoy Prague's beautiful sunset. The place offers a stunning view over Prague and its bridges. A great benefit is also that there are rarely tourists and so it's quite calm and relaxable.
Great place to enjoy the beautiful view of the Vltava and Prague.
